Texas affirms Constitutional 10th Amendment State Rights


governor.state.tx.us

AUSTIN – Gov. Rick Perry today joined state Rep. Brandon Creighton and sponsors of House Concurrent Resolution (HCR) 50 in support of states’ rights under the 10th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

“I believe that our federal government has become oppressive in its size, its intrusion into the lives of our citizens, and its interference with the affairs of our state,” Gov. Perry said. “That is why I am here today to express my unwavering support for efforts all across our country to reaffirm the states’ rights affirmed by the Tenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. I believe that returning to the letter and spirit of the U.S. Constitution and its essential 10th Amendment will free our state from undue regulations, and ultimately strengthen our Union.”

This speaks for itself.

States affirming 10th amendment sovereignity in certain state rights in order to prevent the Federal government from 'intruding.'

The irony that this is happening in former President Bush's state is not lost, as the complementary news article today (below, and on ATS breaking) highlights the growing right wing backlash to our current liberal administration and new deal economics.

The seeds of civil war 2 being sown? Let's hope not.

Bread and circuses, people.

When they take the Texas Rangers (or the State Police in other states) and kick out all Federal "offices" EXCEPT for the post office, THEN you will know that they are serious.

Until then, it's all just bread and circuses.

Man I really admire what Texas is doing lately. If they weren't ground zero for the illegals and the war on the border I'd consider moving down there.

And it won't take much more of the current administration before Texas and other states get even more serious about protecting their rights and their citizens. Of course, that might just be what TPTB want to happen.

sir chancelot, I suppose I really never thought it through to the level you did. Good heads up.

Come to think of it, you're correct. The only federal offices within states could be limited to the Post Office, the Department of Transportation, and the FAA.

Social Security administered by the Fed is illegal, the FBI would have to be invited in by individual states on a case by case basis, there would be no IRS as States would collect taxes, HOLY COW!

Sure would simplify things and make things much more efficient.

yes, agreed, actual actions by the state would speak louder than words.

this has been a popular topic on ATS and apparently the states are still at it.

the ultimate worry would be a 'city-state' amalgam of loosely united states,

with 'papers' needed to travel in between states. state police militias would

be created. etc etc.

(have actually had dreams of blue uniformed servicemen stationed at my birth home

several years ago, recurring)

Now this is the kind of action all of the states need to take...Stand against Washington D.C. and draw the line in the sand. Enough is Enough, and Americans are getting fed up! We need more state governors to follow his lead!

I just watched the video of this...just made my day. While I think the state I live in may never do this, I just might make a move to one that does.
